SOURCE: The recoil starter on my Briggs & Stratton not engaging flywheel

Andy, Hi, well I would start at the Starter myself, usually the thing called the "Bendix" spring jams up and stops it dead. Pull of the Starter, and power it up, off the unit. This will show you if it snaps in and out.
Sometimes a few judicious whacks with a soft hammer will sometimes free up the spring, if thats is indeed what's wrong. Anyway try that first. before any disassembly.
Make sure the Motor CAN actually be turned, by turning the flywheel, this should show you if the Motor is "Free" enough to move.
Also check ALL electrical connection to the starter. Use a meter and see if you are actually getting a voltage to the starter too. make sure your starter battery is good too.

I have a Tecumseh vertical shaft (TVM195 1502630 (C) )electric start engine, would like to change it to recoil start, what parts do I need?

Will try to answer your question.First your shroud cover that cover flywheel. Does it have threaded holes to bolt recoil on it. If not you will need to find a donor engine the same size. On donor engine remove shroud then remove bolt holding flywheel there will be a washer and recoil cup remove both. Remove other shroud and safety screen then flywheel nut and install donor parts the same way and should be all you need to do. One thing... Check flywheel for locking hole or slot for recoil cup so it does slip when pull recoil cord. If there is no way to do this you will need to change flywheel too.But if there is no teeth for electric starter you will lose that option altogether for electric start if you want both.

Cub Cadet SRC 621, won't start. New spark plug, cleaned carburetor and air filter, Whiffs of smoke occasionally

Sounds like a sheer flywheel key. Common on the SRC 621. Kawasaki motor, correct. The flywheel key is under the recoil. Pull the flywheel and check the key. A very small key is there. Breaks and puts the engine out of time

4hp briggs and stratton roto tiller motor will not engage when pulling the rope

There are 3 metal arms that come out when the recoil is pulled. These arms can get dirty or rust and stick in so the recoil won't engage the flywheel or crank. .You will need to pull off the recoil and lubricate and work back and forth the arms.

Cord is stuck. Can't pull it

is cord stuck out or in? sounds like possible fan/flywheel cam loose on you which will cause this, take recoil off and see if it rolls over by hand with spark plug out, if so then reinstall recoil and see if pull rope works then, if not check fan and/flywheel on opposite side you will have to dissasemble case to do this, lots of screws, once there check flywheel key in flywheel to see if it has spun, if so you will need new flywheel approx$ 60.00 part hope this helps you
